find compromise? house speaker john boehner says he's ready to talk. >> talk about all kinds of things we may disagree on. i'm the most reasonable, responsible person here in washington. the president knows this. he knows that he and i can work together. now the election is over. now it's time to get to work. >> brianna keilar is at the white house. so, brianna, what do you expect president obama to say in this afternoon's remarks? >> reporter: carol, i think this is really going to be him sort of setting the scene and explaining to the american people what is at stake here, some of the things that christine outlined. we know that yesterday the cbo, congressional budget office put out a report saying that really the stakes here, that you could see the country sink into recession next year if we went off the fiscal cliff, that the unemployment rate could jump almost 2%. these are very serious things. this is post election. president obama's chance to kind of turn people's attention to this. and to urge congress to work together and to act. you heard him on tuesday night in chicago talki

not include a tax increase for the wealthiest americans, suzanne. >> jessica, we heard boehner, john boehner, actually within the last 30 minutes or so talking about that there are ways to raise revenue and spending cuts as well in a all options are on the table. do you think the white house sees that as some sort of opening, if you will, to negotiations? >> i think both sides are hopeful there is wiggle room for negotiations. everyby knowthat sething s to gone becauseh economy will take such a serious hit if it doesn't. here is where i see the battle line right now. republicans on capitol hill tell me they are willing to raise revenue. that's a big change. they are willing to raise revenue, but without a change in the tax rates. the president has said that the highest earning americans have to pay more. congressional republicans saying no change to the tax rates. that's a big difference of opinion. they'll have to find a way to bridge that divide. beyond that, they're willing to compromise on entitlements. they're willing to find cuts, so there does seem to be room for compromise. there's a

, john boehner, said quote, everything on the revenue side and on the sp spending side has to be looked at but when it comes to specifics he put the ball firmly in barack obama's court. >> i don't want to box myself in or anyone else in. i think it is important for us to come to an dpe agreement with the president but this is his opportunity to lead. >> here to sort what call of this must mean, we have all angles covered, including from the white house ahead of this daily briefing. we have jessica yellin, athena jones and ali velshi in new york. let me begin with you. we were watching the president walk in the east room. i noticed standing ovation. the energy in the room. the president pulled out his own pen saying yes, i'm ready to sign the bill flanked by marylandle class americans. when it comes to middle-clax tax cuts it sounds like the president is sticking to his guns. >> his terms are fairly stark. he's willing to negotiate on entitlements, medicare, medicaid. the white house democrats consider that a huge give the democratic party but what he is not willing to negotiate on is ra

, a republican like john boehner? >> reporter: you know, we've been asking whether or not there will be a press conference happening any time soon. so far, no confirmation of that. lock back over history. former president bush had a press conference about two days after he was re-elected, former president bill clinton had a press conference about three days after he was re-elected. so if history is repeated here, we expect that the president would, indeed, have a press conference some time soon but the white house not confirming that yet. >> all right. dan lothian, reporting live from the white house. >>> in the wake of his re-election, we're learning of another milestone for president obama. he now holds the record for the most popular tweet ever. he took the title from none other than justin bieber. president obama posted this photo on twitter and facebook tuesday night when his victory was certain. now this image is the most retweeted and liked fophoto in social media history. more than 784,000 retweets on twitter and nearly 4 million likes on facebook. >>> voters in two states say yes to po

there will be maneuver ra built between the president and john boehner. the president wants to make sure that rich people pay a little more in taxes. boehner says he's open to that but not by raising the so-called tax rate. he's opened to that by eliminating tax loopholes and exemptions and generating tax revenue by an improved economy if the gdp goes up. people will be making more money, presumably, that's the theory. there's some maneuverability. i suspect the pressure is so great that they will get some kind of a deal. it may not be a permanent deal but maybe enough to kick the ball down the road and study major tax reform over the next year. >> and so the congressional budget office came out with a report last week that seems to give the republicans some political cover here because it suggests that there will be no big harm to the economy if the wealthy 1% are taxed at a higher rate. that said, i would assume -- and you'll have to weigh in here tha, that loopholes are still highly in play. >> you have to add up what all of the math shows and if you -- forget about the middle class. for wealthy peopl

that we've seen since the election, whether it's from the president or the house speaker john boehner, but i can tell you in talking to sources privately on both sides of the aisle, they admit that it's all about positioning and posturing to make sure at the end of the day if we do go off the fiscal cliff that they're not blamed for it. they're the ones who looked reasonable, not unreasonable, and they're preparing for the other side to blame them for the opposite, if that makes sense. that's a lot of what you are saying in public. the reality is that neither side has a really clear machine date or clear vote and no one wants to look at the end of the day like they never gave compromise a chance. listen to republican bob corker, though, because there does seem to be a little bit of a crack on the republican side on whether or not it's okay to raise some taxes. >> i think there is a deal. the ying and yang is we know there has to be revenues, and i think -- look, i haven't met a wealthy republican or democrat in tennessee that's not willing to contribute more as long as they know we so

this to be a juicy story as opposed to writing about white house budget negotiations with john boehner, particularly in the last 12 hours as we have learned about an fbi agent who was investigating the case initially who sent a shirtless photo of himself to one of the women involved and now these 30,000 e-mails, suspect e-mails between the general who had been commanding the war effort in afghanistan, general allen, and jill kelley, one of the women involved in this, which make me ask the question, when does he have time to run the war? >> right, right. i want to ask you, too, watching pictures of the white house in the briefing room and jay carney's going to step up to the podium, get a lot of questions, you can bet a lot on the scandal and the implications and this certainly has to be quite a distraction, to say the very least, the white house. how do they get on top of this? how do they get ahead of the story in some way? clearly they're not going to want the president to deal with these questions tomorrow at the press conference. >> well, it's inevitable, you can put money on it president obama

the house speaker, john boehner. he says he is willing to accept new revenue, but not from higher tax rates on wealthy americans, so where is the compromise here. what is the offering? >> well, exactly. i mean, that's what we were standing what we are several months back. both sides say they want to find common ground and both of them remain dug in over this big issue of taxes. they should have to share the burden of bringing down the dead, and let's listen more of what speaker boehner had to say in his speech yesterday. >>> certainly won't do in a lame-duck session of congress. it won't be solved simply by raising tacks or taking a plunge off the fiscal cliff. >> you mentioned they are open to new revenue, and it's very important where that revenue comes from, and it has to come from the right place. to him the right place is not raising taxes on higher earners, it's tax reform that would lower rates for everyone, and it's economic growth that would bring in more sales taxes and that sort of thing. >> harry reid says this is kicking it down the road, if you will. is there anything that's g

and problem solving. what did the white house make of john boehner saying that he haen the republicans, they're ready and willing for the president to take the lead, trying to head off the january tax increase plus the automatic military, the other spending cuts that the so-called fiscal cliff? >> reporter: look. everybody is expecting to head in to negotiations on this quickly. there's full plans here at white house for quick entrance to in to the discussions and the president has no plans, brooke, to give any kind of major speech, any kind of address on economic policy or on the fiscal cliff and their view that the president laid out his rigs for a grand bargain for the negotiations when they were talking about first the grand bargain back in the summer last year and then when congress was negotiating that super committee. but they're prepared to deal. you know? to create some sort of room for negotiation. one thing we know is that the white house said point-blank the president would veto any proposal to raise taxes or, sorry, that keeps the bush tax cuts for people making $25,000 or more.

after the election you had john boehner come in and say, look, we'll be willing to accept some revenue increases at some particular point. but like i said before, i think it's a reflection of how weak obama was two years ago, otherwise we wouldn't be in this situation. i think the republican party realizes that they were absolutely wiped out last week, they really do need to negotiate more. barack obama needs to stand his ground for once, he never has to run for reelection again and i do think we can get a conclusion that's not going to lead us to some horrible economic apocalypse. but that's only if the republicans negotiate and barack obama remains strong. >> okay. i'm going to ask both of you for your predictions. how long will it take lawmakers to come up with a deal? maria? >> i think it will take up until the middle of december. >> jason? >> yeah, and -- >> it'll be a christmas surprise for everybody. i think they're going to be until the last minute and they're going to leave at the absolute last minute. both sides will hold out to look tough. >> but i think -- >> a box of compr

at this point is likely no because even the top republican in congress, house speaker john boehner yesterday threw cold water on it saying he doesn't think it's necessary and the top democrat in the senate says the same thing, and others, as well. i have to tell you something that just happened on capitol hill, and that is our senate producer ted barrett just ran into john mccain and asked about something that we're hearing from democrats, which is john mccain is calling for more information to congress, but he had a press conference yesterday instead of going to a closed briefing where administration officials were giving more information. well, ted barrett asked john mccain about that, and it was apparently an intense very angry exchange and mccain simply would not comment on it at all. >> so this is just getting uglier and uglier, at least more passionate, shall we say, dana bash. >> absolutely. >> thanks so much. >>> the gop republicans struggling with its party identity after losing the presidential election last tuesday and it's not just pundits trying to figure out why the republicans

republicans. listen who what house speaker john boehner said about that throwing cold water on it. >> at this point i think that the standing committees of the house whether they be the oversight committee or the intelligence committee are working diligently on these issues, and at this point i think that's appropriate. >> now, what john mccain and his colleagues are arguing is that there's too much stove piping going on. there are too many committees, and twoul today is a good example. there are hearings going on all over capitol hill and then probably will continue to be. they think it all should be streamlined into one committee, but, suzanne, using the term watergate, using the term coverup, saying what did he know, when did he know it, talking about the president, not exactly a way to get bipartisan support for something that, you know, democrats clearly don't want. it is absolutely -- you mentioned at the beginning, very, very tense, particularly between these two old rivals, john mccain and president obama. >> not the way to bite -- get the bipartisanship going. okay, dana.
